Book Description

29 Jun 2007
Insufficient Mating Material takes up where Forced Mate ended, with Djetthro-Jason (Jethro-Jason) severely beaten, about to undergo surgery to change his face and identity before his shotgun wedding to the frivolous Princess Martia-Djulia (Marsha-Julia). No one gives a thought to what Martia-Djulia might do when she realises that it is not her unsuitable lover, Commander Jason, but a stranger being frog-marched up the aisle to become her Mate. Her surprising reaction sets off a firestorm of rumour and rattles a murderer who thought he had gotten away with an ancient crime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Djust Great! 4 Dec 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
We drooled over Prince Djetthro-Jason before and now Rowena Cherry has written his story--one that was definitely worth the wait! In her typical fashion, Ms. Cherry combines sex, action, love, and adventure into one terrific story. Did I say sex? Whoowee!

Princess Martia-Djulia is overlooked, underrated, but not underfed. Commander Jason has captured her heart and she refuses to give in to Emperor Tarrant-Arragon's demand that she marry Prince Djetthro-Jason. Meantime, Djetth, having had wild and crazy sex with her as Jason, is quite amenable to at least the bedsport part of the deal. Her curves drive him absolutely mad with desire. But he has to be patient--not his long suit.

Patience isn't the princess's brother's long suit, either. When Djetth doesn't make progress convincing the princess to mate with him, the emperor decides to shoot the two wayward lovers down on a deserted island. The couple has to resort to surviving on their wits--which is hard since they're both at their wits' end.

Insufficient Mating Material is a sexy, funny adventure story, and informative, too. I had a great time reading this book. Ms. Cherry has written a great follow-up to Forced Mate and Mating Net that won't disappoint either her fans or her new readers. IMM is a stand-alone book. You don't have to read the previous book and novella to have a great reading experience. But I'll bet you'll want to read her other books once you've read this one.

Three cheers for Rowena Cherry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Care to take on a god? 19 Nov 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What is it like, exactly, when two gods go head to head? One will come out the top dog for sure, but it might not be the one readers originally think of. Even on a (supposedly) deserted island, Rowena Cherry can spice up our lives hotter than the blazing sun and it's survival of the royal fittest in her latest futuristic romance, sequel to the phenomenal "Forced Mate".

Princess Martia-Djulia, sister to the hero in Cherry's first book, is enraged when she is deceived by her brother and almost tricked into a royal marriage to an insufficient and malnourished prince. Where is her beloved Jason, the lusty and enigmatic lover she cannot, nor wants to, forget? When she flees the ill planned Mating ceremony, her twisted emperor brother has no choice but to take matters into his own hands.

Prince Djetthro-Jason must mince words and actions--literally. After a brutal beating at the hands of the Tigron Emperor, he must tread carefully if he wishes to live. Fortunately all the carefully laid steps are taking him in what has become an increasingly intriguing direction. The Princess Martia-Djulia makes for quite an entertaining and vexing partner when they become stranded on a deserted An' Koori island. Survival has met its match in the pampered and fluffy-minded woman and it's all the prince can do to see that they both survive the long, enticing nights let alone meet their more basic needs. Oh, what fun can be had under the cover of golden sheets!

Author Cherry doesn't mince words in her amazing sci-fi tales. Stellar wit, wonderful characters and amazing research into basic and not so basic survival techniques make for a very real and relatable environment for the prince and princess. This was without a doubt one of my favorite reads of 2006!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining sequel to "Forced Mate" 14 Nov 2007
By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like the first book in this series, "Forced Mate," this is a Space Opera romantic comedy.

It is the second in a series of books of which the sequence is

1) Forced mate
2) Insufficient mating material
3) Knight's Fork (Love Spell Futuristic Romance)

(There is a further prequel, Mating Net, which at the moment only appears to be available on Kindle from the US Amazon site.)

I thought "Forced Mate" was a contender for the description of being the silliest book I have ever read, but it was also very entertaining and did make me laugh out loud several times. "Insufficient Mating Material" is almost as silly but even funnier. It takes the mickey out of everything from Science Fiction, through Romance, Espionage, and the Freemasons, to the Royal Lifesaving Association.

The basis for the story is that our galaxy contains two major powers, both led by the last surviving members of a superhuman race called "Great Djinn." The first is the Empire of the "Communicating words" under God-Emperor Djerrold Vulcan V. Imagine him as Emperor Palpatine in "Star Wars IV: a New Hope" or "The Empire Strikes back" e.g. a sinister ruler who rarely appears onscreen and you have it about right. Much of the power in the empire is in the hands of his son, Crown Prince Tarrant-Arragon, also known as the Tiger Prince.
